The White House has responded to the petition to build a Death Star.  I love it.

Sigh [Apr. 17th, 2011|11:01 pm]
Ben went down to Kentucky for the weekend, and it looks like the UU church of Hopkinsville is not able to service the mortgage and so a hundred plus (150?) year old historically Universalist church probably is facing foreclosure.

It doesn't look good.

You were born during a First Quarter moon

This phase occurs in the middle of the moon's waxing phases, after the new moon and before the full moon.





- what it says about you -


You test everything. You're sometimes unhappy with what others think is "good enough". You pointing out things you see wrong with the world, even if others are afraid it may cause some unrest. When something isn't right, you're the one who's not afraid to make dramatic changes. You're good at keeping your head in a crisis and reminding people that it takes a shakeup to fix things.

What phase was the moon at on your birthday? Find out at Spacefem.com

Which song makes you happy every time you hear it, and why?

Ode to Joy - for the obvious reasons, but it was also the recessional at our wedding.

Census meme [Mar. 9th, 2011|09:04 pm]
Census meme - US style
1960 - hmm.  I'm not sure?  Maybe still in the Philippines?   I remember the houses there, but not which one when.  Then Dayton OH, and St. Clair Shores, MI - neither recorded by the census.  I can look up when we came back.  Will ask my mother if she remembers, or it should be on the passport.  I know we were back by the fall of 1960, when I started first grade.

1970 - thehouse my parents owned from 1955 to 2009.  Selling it last year was difficult, for me and my mother.  They bought it when he was going to get out of the service, but then he stayed in and ended up in the Philippines for a year and a half.  My grandfather lived there, while they were gone. to college in Hartford CN, then Williamsburg, Va.  Then grad school in Knoxville, TN.  Then an apartment in Alexandria then to the next Census location

1980 - Condo/townhouse in Fairfax County.   Moved into a townhouse and then out to the Chicago area in 1988 and into the house we have now.

1990 current residence, Aurora, IL
2000 current residence
2010 current residence.
